The relationship between the physical structures of your brain and mood and your mental health is complex and fascinating. We’re still learning more about mental health treatment and the brain as we work to improve the lives of people suffering from conditions like post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and treatment-resistant depression.
One tool that shows significant promise for changing your brain and successfully addressing mental health symptoms in the long term is ketamine therapy. At Iconic Infusions, PLLC, of Briarwood Hills, Fayetteville, North Carolina, ketamine infusion therapy is our specialty!
Dr. Bryant S. Edwards and his team use repeat ketamine therapy treatments to help new and existing patients with various health care needs. Here’s what you need to know about how ketamine treatment could restore your mental health.
Tapping the benefits of ketamine
Ketamine has been medically used for a long time as a surgical tranquilizer. The mental health care applications of ketamine have only recently been explored, and we’re still finding out more about how ketamine works to address mental health issues.
Ketamine is also used as a party drug. The treatment protocol we use at Iconic Infusions, PLLC, delivers doses of ketamine that are safe and non-addictive directly to your bloodstream, bypassing your digestion for more total absorption.
Ketamine shows significant promise as a treatment option for treatment-resistant major depressive disorder, anxiety, and other mental health issues. Repeated ketamine treatments appear to open up new pathways in your brain, overwriting the negative mental health symptoms that have trapped you in a low-mood loop.
Your ketamine therapy treatment plan
Talk to Dr. Edwards and the team at Iconic Infusions, PLLC, if you have chronic conditions, including depression, anxiety, PTSD, and chronic pain, and find out if ketamine therapy treatment could be the right solution for you. Ketamine can help in cases where anti-depressant medication and talk therapy haven’t done enough to alleviate mental health symptoms.
Ketamine therapy involves a series of intravenous (IV) infusion treatment sessions, held in our medspa-like therapeutic office environment. We do everything possible to ensure your comfort and safety during treatment, including monitoring your IV drip performed by trained professionals. You can also receive additional infusion treatments at the same time!
Ketamine is a dissociative medication, meaning that it makes you feel detached from your surroundings. Many find this form of treatment meditative and even pleasant as an experience, and most tolerate ketamine treatment relatively well.
Ketamine therapy offers a path forward for many individuals who have struggled to manage debilitating mental health symptoms. Dr. Edwards’ practice is supportive of veterans and patients with a variety of mental health care needs.
